Hello, i recently built a new computer from scratch and i have everything I need except for a new GPU, i am currently using an Nvidia GT 520, it works, but it's not great. I am looking for a GPU that will last long, in terms of actually physically working, and not having to RMA, i am aware technology updates quickly, so there is no real future proof GPU, but i am looking for something high quality that will last for a while. My goal is to spend under 300$, because since i am only using a 1080p monitor, i only need something can display on that with high detail at 60fps, so no point in buying something like a 780. Something that caught my eye was the Asus r9 280 (non x)
I am content with the price and would buy it, but i would like to know if anyone has had it for a while or knows any information about it artifacting/ not working. I did not want to get the 280x because of several reviews of BSOD and flickering/artifacts. Something that I also was interested in was the gtx 770
, as i am aware these cards are of high quality because there aren't really any complaints, although they are priced much higher. What do you guys think? Any help would be appreciated!
My Specs Are:
CPU: i7 2600
MOBO: ASUS Z77-A
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 600w
GPU: GT 520
